June 29, 2021 Aveline Clarke & Peter Daly-Dickson Season 1 Episode 21
6 Star Business
Why the Magic Is Always Hidden inside the Framework; with Gary Weis & Steve McCann - #21
Show Notes

In this episode we sat down with Gary Weis and Steve McCann, where we had a beautiful conversation about human connection in both online and offline worlds, the challenges we face with creating too many formal structures in online meetings, and how we can benefit from communities to connect.


Both these guests brought serendipitous moments of synchronicity and wonder, and it was a pleasure to be on the ride. 


Here’s a summary of what we covered:

12:05 - remembering that we are all human

13:19 - being 6 star means taking some risk 

21:34 - understanding people is the centre of it all

29:33 - the pain of taking on the wrong client

37:14 - how remote working doesn’t quite replace the physical

41:00 - the beauty of human togetherness

43:38 - meetings are far more than ticking boxes of an agenda


Enjoy!

Steve McCann

Director, Rees McCann


Chief Tessellating Officer is hard to get past the spell check, and perhaps the sense check too, and it is what I most like to do - connecting and collaborating, working to find ways of putting the right people into the right space at the right time so that great things can happen. In the world of work that is likely to be related to remote working and events. Designing and facilitating and producing remote events, as well as developing and delivering online first team development training and working practice training.

Look out for the institute of Online Collaboration - launching in June 2021.
